I have never worked in programming, i dont know how to program. never worked in game or software development or anything like that.
But i do know that if you have more then 4 ppl doing something together(like fixing a mmo, making a watch, closing a store) there is no way in hell that you can track every little thing that everyone does.
How much code does one coder change in a day? does he document EVERY LITTLE CHANGE? like a color value from fffffe to fffff9 or whatever. maybe he should, but i know humans, and they are far from perfect.
while i agree that everything should be listed. i also realize that this will never happen.
